Yet again a sold out event, the 70.3 Ironman Canberra was held on 16 December 2012 with over 1,500 athletes competing. This year the weather conditions were perfect with calm lake conditions and a sunny day with reasonable temperatures.
As one of the toughest events in the world, the half Ironman course combined a 1.9km lake swim, a 90km ride through the nation’s major iconic buildings and landmarks and a 21.1km run through downtown Canberra’s parklands.
